New Model Coir Society

2021

Formerly owned by the Bombay Company, the New Model Co-operative Society Building is being adaptively restored into the Museum of Labour Movement in the Alappuzha Heritage Project.. The Society's godowns, which have fallen into disrepair, will be restored as an asset to Alappuzha's heritage. The spallings, rotten timbers, hairline cracks, broken joinery among others were properly treated and restored.

The concept is to conserve these buildings to enable them to educate people about their rich history. The Museum shall exhibit various galleries which talk about the history and journey of the Labour Movement in Kerala along with the importance of coir or the Golden Fiber in the region.
